3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

First the good. Great beach, and excellent pool, but underutilized. I could not work out why more people weren't in the pool! Big spacious, clean rooms with fresh towels etc.

The bad; It is a bit out of the way. We rented a motorbike so could get around fine, but without transport it may be a bit of a hassle. The staff were a bit of a pain sometimes, breakfast uninspiring and a had to constantly badger waitress for coffee.

Probably more suited to family or those who just like to lay on a sun bed all day. Value wise OK, get way you pay for, no bargain but for those who use the facilities may be better value.

Dear "Rluk_08"

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor.
I am glad you liked your stay in November and approve of our facilities particularly your room allocation. I am also happy to note that you enjoyed the quiet secluded beach with clean crystal clear water - probably the best reason among many others why there were not as many guests in the pool area apart from their large space. Our location is also conveniently accessible to Patong and Karon beaches- only a 5-minute ride to both areas. (Another unique aspect of the resort.) Your comment regarding our associates is greatly appreciated and has been shared with the team to further review their service delivery. Thank you for sharing this and we do hope to welcome you and your spouse again, should your travels bring you back to Phuket.

Kind regards,

The staff was fantastic, grounds were incredible, secluded beach was quiet and peaceful. The non motorized water sports were fun and having a massage hut right on the beach for only 500baht was heavenly! Very very worth the stay an great for families.

Le Meridien is an efficient and extremely comfortable hotel. It has wonderful pools and has it's own private beach with clean sand and crystal clear water. The rooms are large and airy and we would recommend the Pool View room which through the palms has an adequate view of the sea. Great breakfasts and delightful staff. If returning to Phuket, would certainly stay here again. Located con

if you want to take your family away from it all and just enjoy time with them... go here. my life is hectic and i do not spend enough time at home so holiday is about quality time. this hotel has it all for a very good value. 1 week here, sun, perfect slow sloping beach, large pools, full house and still more then enough space for all. only breakfast was too crowded for me, but start at 11:30 with a late breakfast/early lunch and all is good. you can dine in many different outlets, all friendly and the main restaurant had a different theme-show every night. rooms a good size and with connecting rooms, 1 had a full shower and other a full bath, something for all. yes it is a bit older, but clean, well maintained, kids club, mini golf etc. we only left the resort once to visit friends and otherwise let life be and treat us well. anytime again.

I went to the Meridien with some hesitation as it is an old hotel and some reviews had complaints about it.
Was, however, pleasantly positive surprised about the overall quality and friendliness of the staff. At reception we
were checked in by Apple and she really was a extremely friendly and helpful staff. We got a standard renovated room
Which was perfect, big balcony and excellent bathroom, comfortable beds, all fine.
Pool, beach and setting of hotel is all fine.
What could improve is the food quality in most restaurants. We tried all Thai andJapanese was ok but the rest is really
Just average food. However considering the mass and size of hotel guests. They could as well improve the free wifi.
I will be back and hopefully wifi will be free all over the hotel.

I had wrote a review back in January "3.5 star hotel, 6 star prices". I still stand by my comments that I had made before. There was not much this hotel could have done to make my stay more comfortable, but I hope that my meeting with the manager had made some difference. After we had upgraded to a grand suite, I noticed there were tiny spiders crawling all over the head board of the bed. The housekeeper sprayed something, but it did not quite work. I brought it up to management, but it seemed like they did not quite understand what I was saying. It was very frustrating staying here. I will not return to this hotel. Yes, we had dinner and breakfast comped during our stay, but it doesn't overcome the issues we had during our stay. By the way, after some research, I found out that you can stay at The Shore hotel (which is close by) for the same price and have a larger room with your own private pool and free wifi. They also have a private beach. It's also a newer hotel.

The first one that we noticed from the hotel was how similar feeling it was like Waikiki in Hawaii. Lots of tourists with families and high prices. The greeting from the entrance was courteous, giving flower bracelet, and the check-in process was quick with no waiting line. As the hotel was quite old, the room was not totally contemporary setting. But, it was very clean and cozy with 1980's ambiance. Food was expensive, but, very good quality and service. The best part was ocean view from the room, capturing a perfect kodak moment, and, its private beach with clean sands, and, lots of seatings with umbrellas. We even encountered a very friendly baby elephant with a handler, and, it was a magnet for kids, which was very nice to see. Overall, it was good stay, and, the only wish was not reflecting too much like Waikiki.
